|TRUE||Claim by Jevin Hodge (D): David Schweikert has “been convicted of 11 House ethics violations.”
Politifact rating: True (In 2022 and 2020, Arizona Rep. David Schweikert was fined $175,000 by the Federal Election Commission and House Ethics Committee for multiple campaign finance violations. Investigators said he failed to report loans, allowed funds to be used for noncampaign purposes and slow-walked handing over documents to play out the statute of limitations for the worst offenses.)

There’s no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2022 elections, just as there wasn’t in 2020.)
